This is an excellent resource for teaching students about the value of money!  I especially liked the way there is an option to press the speaker button to hear the words read aloud.  I thought the presentation of the information was well-organized and easy to follow.  Lots of practice problems are given to reinforce learning.  The sound effects make the quizzes more exciting.  I would definitely use this resource in my classroom!

Technical Remarks:

All of the links worked well and were easy to follow.

I would absolutely use this StAIR in my own classroom. This does a wonderful job of reviewing the coins and their amounts before requiring students to move ahead. I like the home button which allows students to review their coins as many times as needed before moving on in the activities. The text-to-speech feature is important, in that it allows students to focus on the money rather than reading a large amount of text. This can often times frustrate students, so it is great that a recording is provided. Inductive and deductive teaching strategies are used as students are allowed to review the coins, but they then must use their own strategies to add and compare coin amounts. The student will not become overwhelmed with graphics and background noise as each slide was created in a clean, well organized fashion. Background information is activated at the beginning of the presentation, and relationships are discovered through comparing the various coin amounts. A range of technologies is incorporated through games and comparison activities, and automatic feedback is given after answering each question. This is a great tool to use in the classroom, and could easily be adapted for any classroom.

Technical Remarks:

All links are currently working and accurate. Upon downloading the presentation, the user may be prompted to go navigate through a file before finding the PowerPoint presentation.
